February 11 & 18, 2014 Quick Hits

QUICK HITS:

♦ Tomorrow, the James Beard Foundation will announce the semifinalists for their awards.  The list will then be winnowed down to finalists on March 18, with winners being announced the first week of May.  But you can’t win if you’re not a semifinalist, so stay tuned…

♦ Building upon earlier reports last July from Lesley Abravanel at Miami.com, Short Order reports that Tom Collichio’s forthcoming restaurant at the old Roney Plaza hotel (on its third “hundreds of millions of dollars” facelift, now known as the 1 Hotel & Homes South Beach) will be a farm-to-table joint that concentrates on “seafood dishes with Mediterranean flavors.”  These and other restaurant buzzwords can now be found in the “local and sustainable” edition of Magnetic Poetry.

♦ Tosca, the South Beach Italian joint that alternated between being obnoxiously overpriced and then apologetic about its pricing, has closed.  Initially positioned as one of the most expensive meals money could buy, the folks in charge eventually changed courses and touted their gentler price points.  But apparently the 1% and the 99% just can’t share a restaurant after all.

I drop a comment each time I appreciate a article on a site or I have something to valuable
to contribute to the conversation. It’s triggered by the sincerness communicated in the post I read.
And after this article February 11 & 18, 2014 Quick Hits.
I was excited enough to post a comment :-P I actually do have 2 questions for you if it’s allright.
Is it only me or does it give the impression like some of the remarks look like they
are left by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are posting on
additional social sites, I would like to keep
up with anything fresh you have to post. Could you list the complete urls of all your communal pages like your twitter feed, Facebook
page or linkedin profile?
